This is a very good value. I'd say best location on Kaanapali beach. Grounds very well kept up. Unit 556 (1 bed-1 bath) has one of the best views in the Whaler. Lanai stretches full length of condo and it's wide, feels spacious. Exit either from bedroom or living room to Lanai. Brand new, fully equipped kitchen. Good space for two adults for 10 days.Newer furnishing. Living room couch and mattresses could be next on owner's upgrade list. But you get a lot for the price at the Whaler and we had a great stay here.

Stayed: November 2015

We had the pleasure of returning to the Whaler, unit 1151. This unit is direct oceanfront with a wrap around lanai. Upon entering the unit we were amazed about how much the owners, Mike and Elaine Jordan, had done to an already fantastic unit.
Mike and Elaine are a pleasure to deal with, they are committed to ensuring all guests needs are addressed and taken care of.
The unit is most tastefully furnished and the kitchen has everything a guest may need.
It is most enjoyable to sit on the lanai using their new table and chairs.
It was, once again, a beautiful stay in paradise.

We've stayed at The Whaler twice now: once in Room 211 and once in Room 260. Both rooms were very, very nice, and the location/view were AWESOME from both balconies. The second floor was high enough to have a beautiful view of the ocean and only one set of stairs to get to the beach. Other than arrival and departure day with our luggage, we never had to use the elevators. It was so convenient to be literally just steps away from the pool, the walkway along Ka'anapali Beach, and the beach/ocean. All the staff, especially Amy, were SO friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Lower rooms facing inward toward the opposite tower offer great views and close proximity to stairs leading to the beach/ocean.

Fantastic hotel especially if you don't mind not having any food in house.
However next door are plentiful restaurants bars places to eat.

Great staff with happy helpful attitude.

Must say rooms in tower 2 facing whalers village may overlook air conditioning vents, noisy & ugly.

We had one bedroom had a Murphy bed in lounge perfect comfy.

Stayed in a 1 bedroom 2 bath ocean view room over Thanksgiving holiday. This was not an inexpensive reservation. The location is fantastic the room had views of the mountains and the ocean and was well appointed with cooking utensils etc. Everything had been remodeled with premium brand appliances and plumbing......except for ......the mattress :-(
It was lumpy, sagging and clearly past its prime. I would have gladly traded the premium sub zero refrigerator for a new mattress. Other than that one blemish I would highly recommend this property
